Consider for a moment a large retail chain, with several hundred or a couple thousand locations. How big a lab should they have
before deciding to roll out a new network something-or-other? Should their lab be 1:10 scale? A more realistic figure is that
they'll consider themselves lucky to be between 1:50 and 1:100, and that lab is probably understaffed at best. Having a
dedicated lab manager is often seen as an expensive luxury, and many businesses don't have the margin to support it.
